People la the Tropics Don't Indole
Much la Frosea Water Not
Kaseatlal to Comfort.
According to the consular report
more ice is consumed in Chicago during-
hours of hot weather than Is con
sumed Uy all the Latin American states
except Mexico in 12 months. In Chi
cago ice is considered a necessity all
the year round, and in the Latin states
it is considered in bum places a luxury
in veil; hot weather, but not an over
deairablc luxury. There are meiUcal
men. says the Chicago Chronicle, who
attribute the longevity of life In the
tropics to the absence of Ice-cold wa
ter and beverages, which force an un
natural and hurtful temperature of the
fltomoch and open the system to dis
ease attacks with little or no power of
resistance. This is especially true,
they say. of those who are subjected to
much physicul exercise, for cold drinks
greatly chock the system without ma
terially quenching thirst.
The nights in the tropics are nearly
always cool, which enables butchers to
prepare meat in the evening for the
next day's consumption without fear
of it spoiling mesttwhile. As for fruits
and vegetables, i are so plentiful all
the year round j cheap that it
does not pay lo? the expense of
erecting cold storage houses or keep
ing refrigerators to preserve them. So
while nat m elius not provided the Lat
in American states with Ice-making
weather, it has provided them with a
climate and ground productions' whleh
make ice not an absolute necessity.
The laws of nature always conserve
man's best interests.
Most of the principal cities in the
Central and South American etatea
have one or more small lee factories,
but none of them can find a market for
the production. This comes in part
from the inability of the people to pay
the price, which runs all the way from
one cent to eight or more cents a
pound, in part from no pressing; desire
to have ice and In part from a supersti
tion that ice, especially manufactured
ice, Is not healthy. It may be said that
family ice consumption is conflneden- j
tircly to the wealthy and those in fair
circumstances, and they buy it in quart
titles merely sufficient to serve ice wa
ter and cool wines at mealtime. It is
believed, however, that if the factories
would introduce improved machinery
so as to reduce the cost of production
and then manufacture the article in
large quantities at low prices to con
sumers the people would in time give
them support.
The New Orleans and QaLveston ice
factories are trying to build up a trade
In Central and norlhernSouth America,
but the waste by melting is so great
that there ia little if any profit in the
business. It is said an American com
pany ia talking of constructing a num
ber of ice plants, which they
popoae to move from coast town to
coast town ns occasion and demand
may seem to justify. Hut it is clearly
to be seen by the consular reports that
two things will have to be done before
the ice trade in the Latin states will
amount to much. The cost of ice must
be reduced so as to meet the ability of
the people to pay and the people must
.be educated into looking upon it as a
necessity rather than an expensive and
unimportant luxury.
Hut American money and enterprise
is at work anil if possible ice will be
made a popular commercial commod
ity in the tropics.

This lesson in circumstance and sur
roundings as well as In our (lospel rec
ord immediately follows tJie last.
Jesus was speaking ;o the same people
as at the house of Zaccheua murmured
that He had gone to be a guest with a
sinner, but He was also speaking to a
great multitude who had accepted Him
as the Messiah and were expecting
"that the kingdom of God should imme
diately appear." He was traveling to
ward Jerusalem, was only IS or 20 miles
from that city, and the multitude ex
pected Jesus was there, and there to
establish Ills earthly reign. The para
ble was a warning to them. Jesus, like
the nobleman, waa to receive His king
dom, indeed, but, also like the noble
man. He would have to go away to re
ceive it; that is, He waa to die. The
nobleman, we are to understand, was
not to receive some distant kingdom,
but was to go to some distant place
where the chief authority resided in or
der to be made king over his home prov
ince, where he would reign. The object
of tbe parable was to show those who
expected Jesus to immediately found
an earthly kingdom how to wait in
faithful, pa tint service for the coming
of the kingdom.

The Nobleman and His Kingdom.
As explained in the introductory para
graph, the nobleman w as to be king not
over a distant kingdom, but over the
province which he was leaving for a
time. The length of his absence was
for an indefinite period.
The Ten Hounds. Ortain of his
cares had to be shouldered by others
during this absence. Like a wise man.
be did not entrust the whole to any one
servant, but divided the work share and
share alike among ten servants. There
is one interesting point about this para
ble that is not brought out in the sim
ilar parable where one servant was
given five pounds, another two, and a
third only one pound. Here every mau
bad only one pound. Different men of
different abilities used this pound. No
complaint was made that the pound
waa not enough for the abilities of the
servant, but the greater ability was so
used to make more of the pound which
was entrusted to his care.
One man did not put his pound to anj
use at all. He kept it and returned it.
As far as mere honesty was concerned,
no fault could be found. Hut he had
not done that which be had been left
to do. The nobleman had said: "Oc
cupy till I come." He meant that it
should be used and invested. The no
bleman iaad not said' anything about
how much should be returned. He was
merely to make the best possible use
of it. Had be lost itin a legitimate way
no fault could have been found, but he
had not obeyed his master. He had
made no use whatever of bis talent.
The Kebellious Citizen. The refer
ence to the citizens who did not want
the nobleman to be king and who had
protested against his authority was
meant as a warning to the enemies of
tbe kingdom Jesus come to establish.

In tho ftrst place we are to recall
that Jeaua waa tbe Son of God. This
gives authority to Hia teachings. Hia
coming waa heralded by the angels,
His star waa aeen by the wise men of
the east, and other signs showed that
He waa no ordinary man, but the
promised Messiah sent to redeem His
people, and having in Himself the es
sence of the Divine nature.
He wee the Son of Man, being a
lineal deacendant of David, king of
Israel, and having for His mother
the Virgin Mary. Being the Son of
Man, "He was tempted in all points
like as we are, yet without sin." This
gives us affinity with Jesus Christ and
furnishes the promise that through
Him, the God-Man, we may rise above
our lower and meaner selves and come
into fellowship with all that is divine.
Keeall the opportunities of the time
1 of Jesus' coming. This was no acci
dent, but a part of the divine plan.

peace, that there was one language
that could be generally understood,

this place the picture of the boy
Jesus at the age of 12, seeking to
learn of the Jewish rabbis, and the
purpose of His life which was thus
early brought out by the question:
"Wist ye not that I must be ulioui
my Father's business?"
Then comes the introduction to Hil
public ministry. The first event was
the preaching of John the Haptist
then the baptism of Jesus; third),
the descent of the Holy Spirit, and
last, His temptation in the wilder
ness. For 40 days He thought and
prayed and fasted. Here with His
life before Him He was met by the
three greatest temptations that could
come to a man of His human tempera
ment and capacities. The first was
the temptation to command the stones
to become bread. This may be in
terpreted aa the temptation to put
physical and' matet'al things above
that which la spiritual. The second
was to cast Himself from a pinnacle
into the crowded court of the temple.
This would have gained him immedi
ate recognition, but not so could He
become the redeemer of the world.
Tho last temptation was to become
the recognized ruler of all the king
doms of the earth. This was a subtle
temptation, for He had come to es
tablish His kingdom on earth. It
was the temptation of power and in
volved the putting of Satan in the
place of Ood. We are not to suppose
that the temptations of Jesus were
not genuine. He was human as well
as dlvino, and these temptations were
the battles between the two natures
for supremacy, and the divine tri
umphed. Jesus' ministry extended over parts
of at least three years. The first
year was the year of beginnings. At
Cana of Galilee He performed His
first miracle. At Jerusalem He ac
complished His first reform by driv
ing out of the temple the money
changers. His first recorded discourse
was contained In th conversation
with Nicodemus. His first great min
istry was iD Judea. It was during
this year that He began gathering
about Him a body of disciples. It
was from among these disciples that
He afterwards chose 12 to be apostles.
The second year was the year in
which He laid down the great funda
mental principles of the kingdom of
Heaven. These are contained mninly
in the Sermon on the Mount. Very
briefly in the Heatitudes Jesus points
out those who will come into the
The third year was one of many
notable events, ond early in it there
began to show signs of gathering op
position. It was during this year that
John the Baptist was beheaded. Then
we have the rejection of Jesus at
Nazareth, the sending forth of the
Twelve and the feeding of the five
thousand. The main discourses of this
year were: On the Sabbath, on hu
mility, on welcoming sinners, to the
rich young ruler and the talk at the
home of Zaccheus. The notable para
bles uttered included that of vthe
great aupper, the lost sheep, the lost
coin, the prodigal son, the unjust
steward, tbe rich man and Lazarus,
and tho pounds. It was in this year
that His transfiguration occurred.
